Open Quote I love having my kids at Kyffin. My kindergartener is being challenged and she loves it. It’s the perfect amount of schooling for her! She loves her teacher and I am very pleased with the school system. My preschooler also enjoys it, and he is definitely learning lots of things! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
